Thank you for stopping by and welcome to my blog.
This blog is dedicated to my mother, who successfully passed on her love of cooking, trying new recipes and providing delicious variety for every day family meals. She belonged to the generation of cooks and times when local, seasonal cooking was the only way to go. When a particular ingredient was not available, they knew what substitute could be used or how to adjust recipes without it. There was hardly any processed food available, and mostly everything was created from scratch.
As I cook for my family of 4 here in Seattle, I want to emulate her style of cooking. I want to re-create the flavors using the ingredients available here. I like to try new recipes from cook books, food websites/blogs and other interesting dishes I come across. Through this blog, you get a glimpse of my kitchen.
